    Hi all!

    I'm looking to invest in the Kessler Pocket Dolly v2. https://www.kesslercrane.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=100159
    What Manfrotto Head would you recommend that could perform the following vertical move: (90 degree tilt)

    Thanks!!:mrgreen:

    I'm curious what you end up choosing, as I've been developing a pocket dolly using open hardware sources. I'm using a Manfrotto Jr. Head for the slider, but it doesn't quite have the flexibility I see in this video--quite impressive! Whatever the case, there is certainly a cost-to-benefit ratio in choosing a high-end vs. run-of-the-mill head. The Jr. Head is a solid head for its low price ($60) but probably doesn't even compare to what's out there for >$200.
